According to The State, Williams will go to school under the GI Bill this year, and receive a scholarship next year. North Carolina attempted to block him from transferring, which necessitates the walk-on season.

The alum of Crestwood High School in Sumter was recently admitted to South Carolina and plans to walk-on to the football team. UNC blocked his attempt to transfer, meaning he could not accept a scholarship. He will sit out next season and become eligible in 2017.

Williams said he he will pay for college next year via the GI Bill, as his mother is a major in the U.S. Army. He can go on scholarship in 2017.

As a high school recruit, Williams was the No. 5 player in South Carolina.

This is definitely a nice pick-up for Will Muschamp and the rebuilding 'Cocks.
